Ok - Australian papers say Harry is going to Australia; BBC say he's not (denial by SJP). NOW The Times is saying that plans are in progress ..........

Remembered that some might not be able to read Times article so here is an abbreviated version

QUOTE The Times
Planning is reportedly under way for Prince Harry to spend six months on secondment to the Australian Army, either embedded with an Australian unit or as an observer on an extended visit.

Top level talks between Clarence House, the Ministry of Defence and Australian officials are discussing where and when the deployment would happen and whether Harry, a captain in the Household Cavalry Regiment, would serve on the front line, according to The Australian newspaper.

The Australian Defence Force does not have the Apache helicopters that Prince Harry has flown during his two tours to Afghanistan but it is introducing Tiger armed reconnaissance helicopters that perform a similar role.

The newspaper reported that the Prince, who returned from a four-month Afghan deployment in January, was keen to serve alongside Australian soldiers.

But Harry’s planned deployment may not come until next year because this year is already taken up with a number of commitments.....

.... ....tour the US to promote the rehabilitation of injured troops
.......committed to competing in a 200-mile walk to the South Pole with a team of four wounded British servicemen and women.

Am I correct that this means Harry , as his unit is not going to return to the front line for some time (if ever) now wants to join an Australian regiment on front line service in Afghanistan, even if this means changing from Apache to Tiger helicopters?

Who knows? this is still speculation. I think observer is more likely, given that he would need to train on Tigers to a level that is combat ready.

Wait and see.

At about 1:16 and again at 2:02, Harry's hair suggests it might be time for him to quit ribbing his brother.

I too think the same. Why would he serve in the Australian Army, when in future he or his father/brother will have nothing to do with Australia..The moment the Queen dies, Australia will be a republic, right?
Though I secretly hope they will never reach a consensus on the new system, and extend the deadline till end of Charles' reign, and then till end of William's reign and so on....
Forgive me Australians, just a wild royalist fantasy..

Firstly, this idea has been in the press a while and if you look back you can see the report. Personally I think it is a possibility that a secondment could happen but it would be in an observer role. Exchanges between countries military, esp. within the Commonwealth, are not unusual. He would not transfer for a combat role - that is impossible because they fly different attack helicopters and training would take in excess of 6 months, which is the period of time mentioned for the entire deployment. So for someone who wishes to remain in the military, at least for the foreseeable future (say 5 years) working with other forces is good for your career. So on military grounds - there isn't an objection.

Secondly, there may be an objection on political grounds - that is possible, but not definite. Australia may at some stage decide to end their constitutional monarchy but I don't think that they would leave the Commonwealth. So working together would still be valid.

Thirdly, whether Harry wanted to do it - be away from the UK for 6 months. I would say probably yes.

And finally, if Australia didn't want him, I think Canada would welcome him with open arms.

These issues are never one dimensional and this sort of story (unlike Harry's love life and the cot for Baby Cambridge) usually has some basis in truth because it is possible.
